You might be in for a bit of a shock when you compare McDonalds/walmart to your present income.laugh.
The oilfield was good to me -made a man out of me .
I lived in biloxi ,mississippi where things were cheap ,me -my two bros. and another friend lived in a 3 br house.We were never home at the same time or rarely anyway so it didn't much matter.
I brought home $850 to $950 per hitch -7 on 7 off back then- ,and my total bills per month were $185.......
A new chevy silverado was $10,000 and a new corvette was about $18,000 ,and nice houses 1,800sq. ft. brick home could be bought for $55 to $65K .
I now live in idaho and can't find a job making anymore than i made in 1980 ..
Sure wish i'd have spent my money on real estate rather than cocktails/girls and cars.But hey i know what they say about hind-sight =20-20..
AIPAC for president !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
